Slow Progress

I got a lot done today.  Of course, as usual, not as much as I would have liked.  I didn't quite get the quilt top finished but I can't complain. I got a lot of other things done.  Let's see...
I got the blocks stitched together and pressed and the borders cut.  Here is a section of border laying by the center to give you an idea:
I didn't get the top finished but today I also: baked bread, made crackers, fed/watered chickens, did dishes and 4 loads of laundry as well as made a quick trip to the grocery store for milk, salad fixings and some ricotta cheese since I made lasagna for dinner.  So, with all of that, I'm amazed that got as much done as I did on the quilt.
And, this afternoon it snowed!!
Quite hard at times... But beautiful.
We ended up with 2-3 inches of light, fluffy snow.
I've got the day off tomorrow so we'll see how much more I can accomplish.  Right now, I'm done for the day.  Whoosh- I've done enough and I'm tired.  Tomorrow I hope to work some more on the quilt but I've also got to bake muffins for K11 to take to school on Tuesday as well as bake a cake.  Tuesday will be a birthday at our house.

  2. Perfect fabric picked for the borders of the quilt! That really sets it off. Hope you got a good night's rest last night because you'll need it for your "day off" today! (I think I need to start following your diet for your energy. :o\)

  3. The quilt patterns and colors are beautiful! Good job, missy!

    I love writing down the things I do, because in my head it never seems like I've gotten anything done...when I put it in black and white, even I am impressed with myself. lol

    I'm having biscotti and coffee this morning...mmmm
